Review of a Local Plan Consultation period -18 March to 29 April 2021 The Essex Minerals Local Plan was adopted in July 2014 and provides planning policies for minerals development in Essex until 2029.

The Essex Minerals Local Plan was adopted in July 2014 and provides planning policies for minerals development in Essex until 2029. It sets a policy framework within which the best possible use of mineral resources; mainly sand and gravel in Essex, can be achieved. It also allocates sites for future mineral extraction and associated development.

We are required by legislation to complete an assessment of adopted plans within five years of adoption to ensure that policies remain relevant and effectively address the needs of the local community. In November 2019 we published our intention to commence a formal Minerals Local Plan Review.

We are seeking your views on the proposed amendments to the Minerals Local Plan 2014. We are also seeking your views with regards to whether the decision to not amend some policies is appropriate. We are seeking comment on both the nature of the amendments as well as specific wording.

Your comments with regards to the proposed amendments can be submitted between 18 March to 29 April 2021. Please note that there are no newly proposed sites within the plan. Sites that are currently allocated as 'Preferred Sites' have already been demonstrated as being appropriate for extraction through an Examination in Public held in 2013. They continue to be considered appropriate unless there are demonstrable issues with their delivery. All consultation documents can be accessed online via
